“A beautifully perceptive microcosm of humanity.” -Ballet Magazine (UK)
Award-winning Israeli-American choreographer Yasmeen Godder has received worldwide acclaim for her intenselyphysical, no- holds-barred approach to movement. Set entirely to recordings of well- known waltzes, Yasmeen’s new work Love Fire is a visceral response to the desire to fall in love, to lose control, to be transformed and to be taken by passion. Love Fire gives an exhilarating new twist to stereotypes of male and female identity, and the roles they play within a relationship. Johann Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz will never be the same again!
